Roasted Vegetables With Thyme

Roasted vegetables are simply always easy to make and wonderfully delicious because the roasting intensifies the flavor.  It's particularly fun to make because there are so many combinations of vegetables that can be thrown together.  Just toss in oil with your favorite seasoning.  

Here, as always, I like to keep the seasoning simple:  salt, pepper and thyme.
